    Just curious, I need to use windows programs for school that aren't available to my macbook. Although I would love to go from mavericks to Yosemite while keeping my windows partition without anything funky happening. I do have backups of both but I rather not spend the time to restore everything

    It shouldn't, but if you have ongoing work/assignments I'd recommend waiting just to be sure.

    ah ok thanks however according to there website it said existing bootcamp partitions will be okay but we will see how that goes lol "Boot Camp
    Supports existing Boot Camp installations with Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Vista, or Windows 7. New Boot Camp installations require Windows 7 or Windows 8 (sold separately).http://www.apple.com/osx/how-to-upgrade/
